I guess the price is a big thing swaying me right now. I just dont think im going to use it enough to justify spending $500+ on one. That's why the 60mm is so attractive at around $225.
I just bought a Macro lens the Nikon 60mm 2.8G.
Just like you I was looking for its older sibling the 2.8D as its a very good capable lens but the avarage price that I found was over 300$ so since it was very close to the G version in price I decided to get the G.
I bought it about a week and a half ago for 390$, its fantasticaly sharp both in Macro and regular use, its a great portrait lens for a crop sensor camera.
The relatively small focal length is indeed a bit of a draw back if you shoot bugs but other then that its a wonderful lens.
I was debating if to get it or an other longer lens but decided to get it and I am glad I did, for my needs it perfect, a longer focal length Macro lens will mean I can use it for Macro and MAcro alone while I wanted a lens I can use for various needs and it does that with flying colours.
Any length macro lens can be used for any purpose you want... so I don't understand that statement?
